Hope's Corner to Participate in SVGives
For the third year in a row, Hope's Corner is participating in Silicon Valley Gives on Tuesday, May 3, 2016. SVGives is a 24-hour online fundraising effort hosted by the Silicon Valley Community Foundation to easily connect donors with charitable causes. This year we especially need your support to help us collect a matching grant of $20,000.
With the help of generous donors and volunteers, we've accomplished a lot since our last campaign, but the need in our community continues to grow. Between 2014 and 2015, the average number of hungry people we serve increased by more than 30%, and that trend seems to be continuing for 2016. As rents in Mountain View and across Santa Clara County continue to rise at an alarming rate, more people are finding themselves homeless and/or unable to afford nutritious food.
Please mark your calendar to support Hope's Corner on May 3 during SVGives and share this with your family and friends. This is also a good time to check with your employer to see if they offer matching donations that would double your contribution. More details will be coming soon.
